Downpipe- catback connection also does a little but i think that's because the reducer has been torqued and retorqued so many times that it is not round anymore. It looked a little funny the last time I saw it.

Honestly I don't even really care at this point, I'm just glad that I haven't dealt with any real issues that some guys running heavier mods have.
Do you have your CTS dp paired with a aftermarket cat-back or OEM?

Mine is very tinny & raspy sounding btw, even with the OEM cat-back & it being catted.


Ordered up a APR downpipe earlier this morning and calling it a day

The TT downpipe is supposed to fit 4motion & FWD, so that explains the "dramatic" bend....to clear the driveshaft, if it had it.
The bend is still way further out than the CTS downpipe is though, and that's supposed to fit the 4motion too

So, no real explanation on that one

So let's continue to add insult to injury...

I spend $700+ on the APR downpipe, which is a decent chunk of change, and it shows up with a dent on the end of the pipe

I seriously cannot win here

Wow. Sorry man. Maybe modifying the tig just wasn't meant to be. Have you gotten quotes from any local shops on making you a custom one? Custom stuff can be all over the board pricewise but some users have found great success for far less money than name brand with this method.

Yeah, tell me about it

I LOVE this car and it's one of the best/nicest ones I've had, but NOTHING has gone my way when modding it.
I've wasted so much money on it with crap going wrong/not fitting/working right
